SNL perfectly satirizes Nicole Kidman’s iconic AMC ad

Starting with one of his worst cold open skits in recent memory, Saturday night live hobbled through the first half hour of his 48th season. Then Chloe Fineman’s Nicole Kidman showed up to save the day.

In a pre-taped spoof of Kidman’s infamous AMC commercial, Fineman nailed Kidman’s semi-Australian accent and bizarre hand gestures as she praised the films’ power and how “heartbreak feels good in a place like this.”

With Kenan Thompson as the only moviegoer not smitten by Kidman’s enthusiasm, the sketch continued to escalate as the Kidman cult stood up one by one to honor her message of dedication to cinema.

“Heartbreak feels good in a place like this,” they repeated over and over as Kidman grew stronger, her eyes glowing with power and her body floating from her seat. “Our heroes feel like the best part of us, and our stories feel perfect and powerful,” she intoned, “because HERE… THEY… ARE!”

“What the hell just happened?” Thompson replied.

If Kate McKinnon’s departure means more screen time for Fineman, then maybe this new season won’t be so terrible after all.
